The Orange Constant

The Orange Constant

The Orange Constant formed in 2012 in Statesboro, Ga. and quickly made a name for itself across the American southeast. Now residing in Athens, Ga., the group continues to grow a loyal fan-base who craves its eclectic and vintage rock sound that melds progressive composition and improvisation with a pop-like sensibility. TOC's debut album, Time to Go (June 2015), was recorded with Grammy nominated producer John Keane (REM, Widespread Panic) and garnered national praise from Relix Magazine which cited the work as a "confident and polished debut album...laden with connective riffs and melodious charm." Its second LP, Point of Reference, (March 2017) was produced by Drew Vandenberg (of Montreal, Kishi Bashi, Futurebirds) and demonstrates an urge to break genre restrictions and capture a sound of its own. The band shares bills with nationally and internationally touring acts including Perpetual Groove, TAUK, and Atlas Road Crew, and won the 2016 Flagpole Athens Music Award for best "Jam/ Funk" band. The Orange Constant is: Andrew Brantley (guitar/vocals) Nickalous Benson (guitar/vocals) Tyler Walker (bass/vocals) Chris Freiberg (keyboards) and Sam Groveman (drums).

Press:
“Point of Reference displays a striking maturity in TOC’s songwriting” – Homegrown Music Network

“As great as Time to Go is, Point of Reference is better. The new album features songs written over a span of four years… these boys can certainly jam, but there is much more to their sound… Point of Reference soars” – Tie Your Shoes

"The Orange Constant's confident and polished debut album Time to Go is laden with connective riffs and melodious charm. Much of the album evokes a 70's FM AOR vibe, without appearing self conscious" - Larson Sutton, Relix Magazine

"They have hit a home run on their first trip to the plate. From the first strains of “Emily” all the way through to the jammed-out coda to “Ask Me to Jump,” Time to Go is a pure delight. You will hear influences throughout the disk, but this is fresh and exciting." -Scott Hopkins, Music Fest News
